Rook Walk celebrated during history festival

BUILT IN A DAY: Men hard at work during the construction of the Rook Walk on November 27, 1918. A public holiday was declared in Mount Gambier to allow 800 men to build the walkway. The walkway, a 10ft stone wall and three lookouts were completed in one day.

THE Mount Gambier Library will participate in South Australia’s History Festival during May to celebrate the region’s historical places, people and events.

The library’s focus for 2018 is the upcoming 100th anniversary of Rook Walk – Mount Gambier’s largest working bee.
